Australia is the smallest continent on planet Earth, and its inhabitants account for less than one percent of the world's population. Australia's primary land forms include the western tableland, the central lowland, and the eastern Great Dividing Range. The arid Outback covers much of western and central Australia. The continent is sometimes known as Australasia or Oceania when its neighboring islands (eastern New Guinea, the north and south islands of New Zealand, and about seven thousand smaller Pacific islands) are included.
